Sally Gene Stewart

February 12, 1941 — October 18, 2017

Wolfeboro, New Hampshire-Sally Freihofer Stewart, 76, of Wolfeboro, passed away on October 18. A memorial service will be held at the All Saints Church in Wolfeboro on 11 November, at 11:00 AM .   Sally was born on February 12, 1941 in Schenectady, New York to Frank and Gene Freihofer. She attended St. Mary’s School in Peekskill, New York and Lesley College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.   Sally was an elementary school teacher in Belview, Nebraska during the military service of her husband Robert Stewart. Sally and Bob raised their two children, Michael and Jennifer, in various places including Belview, Nebraska, Hawthorne, California, Bedford, Massachusetts, Satellite Beach, Florida, Augsburg, Germany, Quincy, Illinois, and Hudson, New Hampshire.   While raising her two children, Sally volunteered for the Girl Scouts of America and worked part time at the Yarn Barn. She was an avid knitter and her entire family reaped the rewards of hand knit baby blankets, sweaters, and afghans.   Upon retirement, Sally and Bob bought a summerhouse on Sewell Road in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire and eventually moved to their current residence in Winter Harbor. They both enjoyed lake living and boating and welcomed all to visit. Sally and Bob spent their winter weekends at their town home at Sunday River, Maine skiing with their grandkids.   During more recent years, Sally was active as a volunteer guide at the Castle in the Clouds located in the Town of Moultonborough, New Hampshire. She loved meeting the public and enjoyed conversation with her fellow guides and castle visitors.   Sally is predeceased by her brother Frank Freihofer III. Sally is survived by her husband, Robert, sister, Sue Freihofer, of Boston Massachusetts, two children and five grandchildren. Daughter Jennifer Cleary lives in Scarborough, Maine with her husband David and three boys Spencer, Robert, and Chase. Son Michael lives in Flemington, New Jersey with his wife Barbara and their two children Sam and Lucy.   Sally was loved by all and was a great mother and companion to Bob. She liked nothing more than being surrounded by the chaos of family week at the lake every summer. We will miss her and know that she is in a better place after her long struggle with illness. The Baker-Gagne Funeral Home and Cremation Service of Wolfeboro is assisting the family with the arrangements.
